ART IN THE HIGH DESERT 4
July 2018 | www.CascadeAE.com
Jewelry by Alison Antelman
ince August 2008 the banks of the Deschutes River in the Old Mill District in Bend come alive for one of the premier fine art shows in the country. For the past decade, Art in the High Desert (AHD) has been nationally recognized with some significant accolades. For the second year in a row AHD was ranked tenth in the nation (out of 600 shows reviewed) for sales. This ranking makes AHD the only show in the Pacific Northwest to be in the “Elite 25” for 2018, and the only “small town” show. (Source: Art Fair Source Book) The show has consistently risen to top ranking among art festivals around the nation. Dave Fox and his wife Carla founded the festival with a simple vision: to bring truly original thought and intent, going beyond the expected, fine art and craft to Central Oregon. Along with bringing over 115 elite artists and an influx of visitors and art collectors to Bend, the nonprofit show is produced by an all volunteer collection of artists and
art patrons. AHD is one of the local organizations recognized for the positive cultural tourism impact they have in Central Oregon. This year’s premier show and sale of juried fine art and craft is set for August 2426. Fifteen categories of art will be represented including painting, wood work, glass, photography, wearables, ceramics, jewelry, sculpture and more. This is a unique opportunity to visit with, see and buy original art from some of the top artists in North America, including some from here locally in Central Oregon. artinthehighdesert.com On the Cover: Art in the High Desert artists ~ (L-R, Top to Bottom) ~ aerial photo by Ross Chandler, sculpture by Danae Bennett Miller, mosaic glass art by Kate Kerrigan, painting by JanyRae Seda, sculpture by Darryl Cox, painting by Taman Vanscoy, wood by Thom Marchiana, painting by Tim Weldon, ceramics by Annie Chrietzberg, sculpture by Kim Chavez, non-wearable fiber by Beth Poirier and son Tom and painting by Rachel Harvey.

FIRST FRIDAY IN BEND
july 6 Alleda Real Estate 25 NW Minnesota Ave., Ste. 1 alledarealestate.com Watercolor might be an unlikely media for artist Deni Porter because of her desire for saturated color. However, with the use of a glazing process (thin layers of translucent color one upon the other), she can make her paintings “sing” with color. The artist adds further texture and interest to her pieces by using colored pencils. The overall effect is alive with color and emotion. Painting subjects range from whimsical animals and beautiful outdoor scenes of Central Oregon to the streets of downtown Bend. Porter also provides commissioned realistic paintings of pets and children. The result is a family heirloom to cherish for years to come. Porter, who received her degree in art from the University of California in the mid-seventies, regularly displays art at the Artists Gallery in Sunriver. Art in the Atrium, Franklin Crossing 550 NW Franklin St. Art in the Atrium, Franklin Crossing, features noted Bend artists Mark Edward Fuller’s New Coordinates and Randal Fyfe Leigh’s Parietal Art and Petroglyph Suite through July 29. The artists will attend the July 6 public opening. Mark Edward Fuller, recognized throughout the Northwest, presents, New Coordinates, a series of my recent paintings Untitled I by Mark Edward Fuller dealing with chaos and confusion in a search for unity and integration in the modern world, I wrestle with time and memory, facts and fiction, and present the viewer with clues, templates and examples of my quest for balance.” Randal Fyfe Leigh also shows his unique Parietal Art and Petroglyph Suite in the Franklin Street hallway. Through this suite of large scale sculpture, the artist shares his admiration for “the interaction of nature’s geologic artistry and man’s earliest connection with his own imagination and creative impulse.” During First Friday, Noi Thai serves wine and appetizers and the Tommy
Leroy Jazz quartet entertains. Billye Turner, art consultant, organizes art events for Franklin Crossing with info at 503-780-2828 and email@example.com.

We will have wine and jazz music provided by the Ryan Camastral Trio. Cher will offer samplings of her locally-made Cada Dia cheese and the artists will be here. This show will run through July. Steven Lee Adams strives to portray an elusive feeling of timelessness that lies beneath the surface of what may seem commonplace...introspective paintings, urging us to look deeper for the subtleties of nature around us, and the complex world of emotion within each of us. Liz Wolf ’s sculptures depict horses, dogs and crows reminiscent of the minimalist, elegant stone works of the Inuit, a Northwest Coast Native American tribe. Traces of southwestern Native American culture also weave through her artwork. North Soles Footwear 800 NW Wall St. 541-312-8566 North Soles Footwear on Wall Street in Bend will host an art display of paintings by Barbara Slater and Vivian Olsen, two well-known artists in Bend. With a passion for color Barbara Slater enjoys painting bright and beautiful flowers and animals using oils or acrylic paints on canvas. Art is Barbara’s breath and passion. She says, “I believe that an artists’ final work is a depiction of his or her impressions, emotionally, physically, intellectually and above Fruit Shop, Italy by Vivian Olsen all, artistically. I paint what I love. I try to paint passionate paintings…. not just workable paintings, I feel a heartfelt connection to my work.” Vivian Olsen will be displaying townscapes of her travels in Italy and France as well as some wildlife animal portraits. Living in Central Oregon Vivian paints many bird and mammal portraits animals using either pastels or watercolor. She creates vibrant paintings that capture an animal’s behavior and personality and make them seem to come alive. She says, “I paint what I love, especially wild animals that give me a sense of peace and joy.” This exhibit will be showing at North Soles Footwear through July and August in downtown Bend. Both artists are members of the High Desert Art League and their paintings may be seen on highdesertartlsegue.com.

firstname.lastname@example.org Williamson, a master at her craft, creates jewelry designs that are sleek and modern offering something for every style and pocketbook. Sage Custom Framing & Gallery 834 NW Brooks Street 541-382-5884 sageframing-gallery.com Two artists are featured at Sage Custom Framing and Gallery for July’s exhibit, Patricia Markle and Gallery owner Denise Rich. The exhibit runs July 5-28 with a reception on First Friday, July 6 from 5-8pm. For the past few years, Markle’s Pastel by Pat Markle focus has been on creating a series of figurative paintings in oil and pastel. In this new series she welcomed the challenge to work with a live model as much as possible either through actual sittings or support photographs. She also welcomed the challenge to paint in a more contemporary style, stepping out of a classical tradition, while capturing the model’s gesture and expression. Very recently, Markle began experimenting with a totally different approach- abstraction. Instead of portraying an object or figure in front of her based on what she saw, it became an internal dialogue, one that was personal and unpredictable. She will be showing a few of these abstracts, a number of figurative works and two landscapes from a previous series. The focus of Rich’s work in the show is watercolor. Although working in several different mediums when getting the chance, this wet and fluid medium has always been her favorite. Drawing inspiration from nature, subject matter tends to focus on intimate observations from Entwined by Denise Rich the landscape. Twisted branches or roots, the colorful changing of Autumn leaves, or close-up explorations of exotic flowers are likely subjects to catch the eye of this artist. Rich’s interpretations of these and other subjects are included in the show. Townshend’s Tea Company 835 NW Bond St. Batik Artist Barbara Holmes Exhibits at Townshend’s in July. Exhibit will run July 1-31 with an artist reception on First Friday, July 6 from 5-8pm. A mixed media artist and maker, Barbara Holmes explores the world of fiber and mixed media art through batik, creating art pieces that combine
her passion of both media. Holmes artwork brings forth recycled forms and elements from the forest floor to give them new life. Working with canvas, decoupage, and batiked fabric Holmes creates unique abstract and whimsical pieces. Tumalo Art Company Old Mill District 541-385-9144 • tumaloartco.com July featured artist at Tumalo Art Co. is Janice Druian with exhibit High Desert Light. Janice Druian’s exhibit of new oil paintings, High Desert Light, opens at Tumalo Art Co. July 6, from 4-8pm during the First Friday Gallery Walk in Early Morning by Janice Druian Bend’s Old Mill District. Award-winning Central Oregon artist, Janice Druian has been capturing the dramatic light as seen in the high desert for many years. Traversing the back country in her tiny trailer with husband and dogs, there is no scenery that touches her soul more than the high plateaus of Central and Eastern Oregon and Northeastern California. Her focus in these paintings are the fleeting moments at sunrise or sunset when the oblique light creates a special magic often referred to as the “golden hour.” Usually accompanied by dramatic cloud formations, these landscapes offer endless inspiration and capture the essence of the western high desert. The Wine Shop 55 NW Minnesota Ave. thewineshopbend.com • sagebrushersartofbend.com The Wine Shop’s July exhibit features the work of SageBrushers artists, Sue Lefferts and Anne Perce. Sue describes herself as a new artist who fairly recently decided that it is time to re-explore and nurture her creative side. After joining SageBrushers she began taking acrylic painting classes. She draws inspiration from the natural world and is especially fond of the works of early western landscape artists such as Maynard Dixon as well as many of the Impressionists. Anne says she must have been born with a crayon in one hand and a brush in the other. As a young child she was enrolled in art classes and through the years had many different avenues to pursue artistic endeavors. Now she tends toward a more impressionistic style of painting because she loves the simplicity of it, how light affects the subject and the challenge of combining beautiful colors.

Untitled II by Mark Edward Fuller
Art in the Atrium, Franklin Crossing
rt in the Atrium, Franklin Crossing, features noted Bend artists Mark Edward Fuller’s New Coordinates and Randal Fyfe Leigh’s Parietal Art and Petroglyph Suite through July 29. The artists will attend the July 6 public opening. Mark Edward Fuller, recognized throughout the Northwest, presents, New Coordinates, a series of my recent paintings dealing with chaos and confusion in a search for unity and integration in the modern world, I wrestle with time and memory, facts and fiction, and present the viewer with clues, templates and examples of my quest for balance.” Known for his bold paintings featuring pop-icons, graffiti and comic book art, Fuller built a distinguished career while living in Seattle including his receipt of the Seattle Art Museum’s (SAM) respected Betty Bowen Award. The annual award honors one visual artist of the Northwest with a cash prize and an exhibit of a selection of the honoree’s art at SAM. During this time, Microsoft and SAM also selected the artist’s work for their permanent collections. After this period in Seattle, and a self-described “period off the grid” reviewing his life and career, Fuller moved to Bend. Here, he recently reports, “coming out of the shadows and displaying a new lease on life and art.” The artist comments, “I channeled my energy into art, experiencing it as medicine…composing these new creations,” describing his recent collection of work for the July exhibit. Change is apparent as the pop-icons yield to bold abstracted imagery, arranged in sections, and painted with large, energetic strokes in myriad vivid and impactful colors. Hence Fuller’s exhibit title, New Coordinates, succinctly depicts the major shifts exemplified in his life and work. Randal Fyfe Leigh also shows his unique Parietal Art and Petroglyph Suite
in the Franklin Street hallway. Through this suite of large scale sculpture, the artist shares his admiration for “the interaction of nature’s geologic artistry and man’s earliest connection with his own imagination and creative impulse.” Leigh’s chosen title of parietal art broadly refers to cave paintings, drawings and carvings on the interior of caves. His shows representations of these ancient art forms with his works Bovem de Antiquis de Villefranche and Sky Beings and other works. He depicts a petroglyph in his Pacific Current. All may also appear at www.asitisabove.com. The artist laboriously constructed these realistic sculptures of hardened 3D foam core, carved to resemble weathered rock faces, painted to depict both hues of the rock and ancient artwork. He's honed his innate artistic ability with some 40 years of work in Los Angeles. In L.A., he created backdrops, sets and props for live audiences and film productions Carl Sagan’s Cosmos, the Jay Leno Tonight Show and many others, winning two Emmy Awards in the process (for more info see David Jasper’s June 14 interview in the Bulletin’s GO! or the Cascade A&E June issue). Now residing near Bend, Leigh speaks of his admiration of the vistas of Central Oregon or Monument Valley where one experiences great vastness, yet an intimacy. He notes, “Especially, when in that vastness, you discover small but mysteriously elegant testimony to beginnings of that same appreciation etched in or stained on stone, outlasting its creators but resonating through time.” Herein he describes humanity’s fascination, through time, with the geologic and animal world of which we are a part.

Jewelry by Suzy Williamson
end metalsmith Suzy Williamson has been creating hand fabricated jewelry for over 20 years. Incorporating her love of texture, her work has a clean modern style. “I love simplicity of line and color combined with texture. I use a variety of techniques to create textures that I love." Her inspiration comes from repetitive shapes in her visual world — a window screen, pebbles in a stream, the grain in wood, and lately, enlarged photos of diatoms. These images and impressions are translated to metal in several ways. Recently she began using a fusing technique which joins metal by melting opposing surfaces together without the use of solder. It has allowed her to add more high karat gold to her silver designs. Reticulation, a process of melting metal to create a beautiful texture of peaks and valleys, is also a newer technique that she has incorporated into her work. “Reticulation can be controlled to a certain extent but you cannot replicate a specific pattern and the results are always a surprise. That truly makes each piece a one-of-a-kind." Suzy has also started etching sterling silver for yet another way to add interesting texture. The metal is acid etched using a process that lets her use her own photos, images and drawings as a resist to the acid. Brass is another metal that can be etched for use in a technique called roll printing. Etched brass plates are used to impress other metals by running both metals through a rolling mill.

In addition, the artist exhibits her traditional magical forests with butterflies and hummingbirds surrounded by over scale flowers of brilliant color symbolizing spirit’s presence in our material world. Busik, self-taught in Mexican Folk Art, painstakingly expresses the complexity of the folk art’s design and color throughout the artworks.

Capturing Life with Art by JACQUELINE NEWBOLD
sing a warm and colorful palette, Jacqueline Newbold’s watercolor paintings often depict the dramatic skies over the Oregon Cascade Mountains, fields of red poppies, or charming European café scenes. Much of Newbold’s inspiration comes from her travels. She takes along a few painting supplies and her art journal, exploring imaginative ways
Jacqueline working on travel journals
to combine watercolor with mixed-media. Spending time creating in her art journal is her favorite artistic outlet. “Art journaling to me is not so much about making art but recording my
life in a colorful way. My journals are a place where I can experiment with different art mediums, sort things out, write about my life, my emotions, my adventures, and travels. I play with color, sketch, doodle, take notes, make lists, add inspiring quotes, and write about my day. The process is fun, and I love it when the result surprises me. In 1991 I started taking a watercolor journal and a few art supplies when traveling on family vacations. I found it was an expressive way to document my journey. Over the years my journals have evolved from a collection of simple watercolor paintings to complex pages filled with artistic imagery, mixed media, and paintings. The mixed media is how I develop textured backgrounds for sketches, paintings, writings, mini-collages, photos, and poetry.” Jacqueline is the president of the High Desert Art League, a member of the Red Chair Gallery, and the Oregon Watercolor Society. She shares her passion for watercolor painting and art journaling by teaching at her private studio in Tumalo. Her paintings and journals have been featured in national art publications and she has written many articles about the fun of recording life in an art journal while traveling. She has conducted watercolor workshops in France and Italy. Her next overseas workshops are in Orvieto, Italy, September 2018 and Provence, France May 2019.

Mark Shelton, Contemporary Native American Artist
ark Shelton creates intense color fields and textures by layering bits of exotic papers in the construction of his Native American subjects. His distinct collages are further enhanced with boldly applied acrylics. Mark’s pieces reflect moments of traditional identity—offering a prayer, weaving a blanket, reflecting upon sacred waters. Born and raised in Illinois, Mark began making art of one kind or another as a small child, stating, “I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t creating artwork.” He first came to know about “Indians” through Hollywood movies. As a child, he hadn’t been told his grandmother was Seneca since children of mixed heritage frequently weren’t made aware 50 years ago. Some realizations, however, seem destined. Mark found himself identifying with Indian ways, stereotyped as they were. As young boys, when Mark and his cousin played Cowboys and Indians in mock battles, they always embraced the Indigenous side. His cousin, though an adopted child of Italian heritage, began claiming and insisting he was Comanche. Mark was an adolescent before his father told him of his immediate ancestry. The reason for the long wait was due to the verbal abuse his great grandparents and then paternal grandmother had endured throughout their lives. Mark moved to Oregon in 1984, where he began studying all Native American Peoples. Moving to New York City to attend art school, Mark graduated with honors from the Pratt Institute in 1991. He then returned to Artwork by Mark Shelton Oregon and began a career in earnest as a painter of Native American subjects. Chief Cliff Snider (Gray Wolf ) recommended, and the Chinook Tribe ceremonially bestowed, the title of Honorary Chinook Tribal Artist upon Mark in 2006. The Native American art world holds a number of annual shows and markets that showcase artists. Two of them are juried and are considered preeminent venues, The Santa Fe Indian Market in New Mexico and The Heard Show in Phoenix, Arizona. Mark has shown in both, receiving an award at The Heard. He has been represented by one of the nation’s finer galleries, Wiford, on the elite Canyon Road of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Internationally, Mark’s works are represented in the Italian village of Vernazza, part of the ultra-picturesque Cinque Terre Coast. One art critic has described Mark’s strength’s as knowing “how to balance brilliant colors with brilliant colors in order to achieve a shimmering allure” in his works. Today, artwork is a key component for confirming, demonstrating, and celebrating the identity of many tribes, including those with Federal recognition and reservation lands. For tribes without Federal recognition, such as the Chinook, they are even more reliant upon this method of expression to help preserve their identity and culture. Mark Shelton, of the Seneca People and also Honorary Chinook Tribal Artist, embraces his duty and ardently endeavors. Mark will be holding a show in Sisters July 27-29, with an Artist Reception on Friday from 4-7pm. His new works will be on display at Raven Makes Gallery.

Moving Freely Between Representation & Abstraction by KEN MARUNOWSKI
ow you see him, now you don’t! Not your normal disappearing act, Bend artist Ken Marunowski may be spotted painting along the Deschutes River, up in the mountains, or in the local neighborhoods of Bend. When you don’t see him, he is likely working in his studio on some large-scale abstractions to be displayed at the Peterson Roth Gallery that represents him. April was a big month for Ken: He not only made a mixedmedia painting that was awarded the official selection for the Sunriver Music Festival’s 41st anniversary poster, but also painted a violin for the Cascade School of Music’s annual fundraiser that sold for $500 at a silent auction! These charitable donations are among his most “realistic” and accord with his plein air (in open air) paintings that also seek to capture a likeness of the motif before him. “When it’s important to capture a likeness of something, I certainly am Sunriver Music Festival 41st Anniversary Poster able to do so, but I also love to push my art into unknown regions of abstraction that yield rather unexpected results.” Ken’s abstract works are quite sizeable, often 4’x5’ or 5’x6’, with his largest effort measuring a whopping 48”x96”, a piece titled Fall Fury. At 6’3” himself, Ken finds that larger canvases resonate with his physical being, allowing him to use his entire arm and the flow of his body when making marks. His
July 2018 | www.CascadeAE.com
abstractions usually begin with a vague sense of a color-scheme and a series of intuitive marks quickly strewn across the canvas. “I want to activate the entire surface as rapidly as possible, not thinking too much and allowing my instincts to guide me. Once well on its way, the painting itself often tells me what it needs, a nuanced color here or a value change there.” The difference between his representational and abstract works is time. When out in the landscape, the artist will likely complete a painting in one session. When in the studio, an abstract work may take a month or more to come to fruition. What unifies Ken’s art is his love of the mark and lush
Bridge Over the Deschutes
surfaces of paint, regardless of subject matter. The beauty of his abstractions lies in their mystery. The viewer must engage the work and try to make sense of it, which puts him or her in the active role of meaning-maker, a hallmark of quality art. In addition to his own artistic production, Ken owns a business called Spirit of Play Art where he leads groups in painting abstractly and collaboratively on a single, large canvas, efforts that foster community, team-building and creativity. He also teaches three classes a month at Layor Art + Supply and substitutes for the Bend La Pine School District.

REALITY! Season One & HAPPY CAMPERS by Bill Cravis
urrently on exhibition at Central Oregon Community College are two new art installations by COCC faculty Bill Cravis, including ceramics and multi-channel video, at Pence/Pinckney Gallery on the COCC Bend campus. REALITY! Season One REALITY! Season One plays on the ritual of morning coffee, as it haphazardly overlaps with daily news headlines. A single banner headline from each day’s New York Times print edition — beginning January 20, 2017 and ending on January 19, 2018 — is emblazoned onto an individual coffee mug. As the months pass, the mugs diminish in size… The original spark for this project comes from personal reflections each morning as I drink my coffee and listen to familiar reports of suicide bombers, school shootings, humanitarian crises, environmental catastrophes and any number of other national and global tragedies. What startles me most is my own apparent apathy as I listen to or read the news – while simultaneously enjoying my coffee and breakfast. This type of numbness has become commonplace. The headlines on the coffee mugs record the unfolding narrative of national and world events as told by one “trusted” news source. As with a number of my previous works, Noam Chomsky’s ideas provide critical insight. Chomsky refers to the New York Times (NYT) as “the agenda-setting liberal media,” pointing out that the NYT’s archives “is the place where people will go to find out what happened… therefore it’s important that the history be shaped in an appropriate way.”
REALITY! Season One Exhibit
HAPPY CAMPERS Random success or failure of the musical round is a key metaphor contained in HAPPY CAMPERS, because each person singing has been prerecorded in the isolation of his car. The truly communal spirit of round singing requires that numerous voices deliberately unite and interweave. Each voice in HAPPY CAMPERS exists in a vacuum, oblivious of all others. The commonplace image of a 21st century traffic jam — solitary drivers trapped in their hulking automobiles, bumper to bumper adrift in a sea of other solitary drivers — is a grand display of frustrated individuals “getting nowhere.” The iconic image of expressway gridlock has been deemed an appropriate metaphor for the shortcomings of Capitalism, a system in which the individual is preoccupied solely with his own advancement, to the detriment of any significant collective gain. The motorists of HAPPY CAMPERS are twice trapped: first, within the confines of their autos and again within the isolation of separate video monitors. HAPPY CAMPERS is a conceptually layered project that playfully examines the alienating role of the automobile in our complex age. Many of us have personal ideals that place high value on the natural environment — at a time when climate change poses a growing threat — but the realities of contemporary life do not always permit us to act in accordance with our ideals. We find ourselves in rush-hour traffic, alone in our automobiles, adrift in a sea of other motorists. The prevalence of cars occupied by solitary drivers during peak commuting hours is a problem that most motorists are aware of, but feel personally incapable of alleviating. Hence, stop-and-go traffic conditions occupy the realm of collective denial…”What problem?” At these times, stuck in a thruway logjam, the lyrics ring eerily true: … Life is But a Dream… HAPPY CAMPERS exhibition through July 31.

Sisters Folk Festival Presents 2018 Summer Concert Series at Fir Street Park
isters Folk Festival (SFF) is pleased to announce the 2018 Summer Concert Series at Fir Street Park. The three-show series is free to the public and will be presented on Thursday evenings, July 26, August 2 and August 16; and is sponsored in part by First Interstate Bank. On July 26, Grammy-nominated bluegrass band Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper will perform. Michael is one of the premier bluegrass fiddlers of his generation and, with 10 International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) Fiddle Player of the Year awards under his belt, he is the most awarded and celebrated fiddler in the history of the genre. Cleveland plays with so much fire, drive and virtuosity that audiences are often left shaking their heads in amazement. Together with his band, Flamekeeper (four-time IBMA Instrumental Band of the Year Award winners), Cleveland delivers some of the most powerful, exciting and authentic bluegrass you can find. After picking up the fiddle at age four, Michael’s musical momentum began to propel him forward towards early success. At age nine, Michael was invited to sit in with the legendary Bill Monroe at the Bean Blossom Bluegrass Festival. Soon after, he brought his virtuosic style to the Grand Ole Opry as a guest of Alison Krauss, and was hand-picked for the IBMA Bluegrass Youth All-Stars before he was 14. His blistering prowess and technical fluency have since marked him as a sought-after musician, leading to performances with Vince Gill, Marty Stuart, Tim O’Brien, J.D. Crowe and the New South, Andy Statman, and The Kruger Brothers in recent years. It wasn’t until 2006, when Michael formed his own band Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper, that he found the right vehicle for his musical vision, and he hasn’t rested since, constantly looking for new ways to push himself and his music forward. On August 2, The Lost Bayou Ramblers will perform, hot off their Grammywinning album Kalenda, awarded Best Regional Roots Music Album in 2018. Lost Bayou Ramblers’ evolution as a “perversely progressive” band rooted in Cajun traditions continues to excite, challenge, and redefine genre expectations as well as cultural preconceptions. Their new album celebrates the complex history and cultural diversity of Kalenda — a Caribbean dance, a Louisiana rhythm, a Cajun rock’n’roll song and eventually a woman’s name — that crossed both the blackwhite and Creole-Cajun divides in so many forms. This lineup of eclectic Louisiana musicians led by brothers Louis Michot (fiddle and lead vocals) and Andre Michot (accordion and lap steel), joined by Bryan Webre (electric bass), Johnny Campos (electric guitar), Eric Heigle (electronics and acoustic guitar) and Kirkland Middleton (drums) brought the cumulative experience of 17 years of touring, recording and collaborating to bear on Kalenda’s creation with intoxicating results. On August 16, the revered traditional Irish band Altan will play in Sisters for the first time. With their exquisitely produced award-winning recordings, ranging dynamically from the most sensitive and touching old Irish songs, all the way to hard-hitting reels and jigs and their dynamic live performances, Altan has moved audiences worldwide. In 2017, lead singer, fiddler and broadcaster Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh received the Gradam Ceoil TG4 award for Traditional Musician of the Year, the premier award in the field. These awards are given on the basis of achievement, excellence and creativity. Altan plans to conduct a workshop on Irish music earlier in the day in Sisters. Altan has always believed that Irish traditional music is a modern music in every sense and its growing influence and popularity have proved them right. Altan continues fresh in their vision of bringing the beauty and joy of traditional music to audiences everywhere. SFF encourages patrons to bring blankets and low-back chairs, as seating is not provided. All shows start at 6:30pm, are free and open to the public and picnics are encouraged. The Fir Street Park venue is located in downtown Sisters at 150 N Fir St. For SFF 2018 Summer Concert Series and artist information, please visit sistersfolkfestival.org Oregon’s Only Arts Magazine Since 1995 | July 2018

Jackson Browne - July 24 Jackson Browne, who has written and performed some of the most literate and moving songs in popular music, is headed to Bend’s Les Schwab Amphitheater on July 24. Except for a brief period in NYC in the late 1960s, Jackson, who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004 and the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame in 2007, has always lived in Southern California. His debut album came out on David Geffen’s Asylum Records in 1972. Since then, he has released 14 studio albums and four collections of live performances. His most recent studio album, Standing In The Breach, is a collection of ten songs, at turns deeply personal and political, exploring love, hope and defiance in the face of the advancing uncertainties of modern life. Browne is known for his advocacy on behalf of the environment, human rights and arts education. He’s a co-founder of the groups Musicians United for Safe Energy (MUSE) and Nukefree.org and a member of the ocean advocacy group, Ocean Elders. In 2002, he was the fourth recipient of the John Steinbeck Award, given to artists whose works exemplify the environmental and social values that were essential to the great California-born author. He has received Duke University’s LEAF award for Lifetime Environmental Achievement in the Fine Arts, and both the Chapin-World Hunger Year and NARM Harry Chapin Humanitarian Awards. In 2004, Jackson was given an honorary Doctorate of Music by Occidental College in Los Angeles, for “a remarkable musical career that has successfully combined an intensely personal artistry with a broader vision of social justice.” Sheryl Crow - July 25 Touring on the tails of her ninth album Be Myself, a collaboration between herself and longtime producer Jeff Trott, Sheryl Crow journeys back to her roots with an introspective look at her early work.

Dreams Now on Track when 98% Have Given Up
their dreams, but to successfully achieve them. The result of this accomplishment is her acclaimed book Go! How to Get Going and Achieve Your Goals and Dreams, released by The Publishing Circle this month and available both online and in bookstores.
ccording to Wealth Research Group, “98 percent of people die without fulfilling their dreams.” In her decades of work with women and girls, Marcia K. Morgan saw the casualties of those who gave up on their dreams. Many ended up needing the social and criminal justice services her firm offered. “I began to wonder,” said Morgan, “what it would take to turn this phenomenon around. I saw ‘dream drain’ as an area that not only deeply affected individuals but caused problems in society on many levels. “When people feel hopeless about their destiny, it can have deep emotional consequences negatively impacting relationships, health, and choices.” That observation challenged Morgan to create a way for, specifically, women and girls to embrace their dreams again. Morgan’s belief that females in particular are affected by “dream drain” bears out in a study by SK-II Global Dreams Index Survey that says “50 percent of women in the world say they’ve given up on their dreams and are unsatisfied with their lives”—and that’s long before they reach old age. In Asia, that statistic jumps to 81 percent. Over time, Morgan put her abilities as a researcher and trainer to work and began coaching women and girls on how to once again not only embrace

Photography by Richard Frederick
uly is a patriotic month and the Artists’ Gallery of Sunriver is all about red, white and blue and recognizing those that serve our wonderful country. Stop by the gallery for the monthly Second Saturday Celebration and hoist a glass or something yummy to eat to honor these great individuals. The party is on July 14 from 4 to 7pm. Since the gallery is open every day during the summer, please stop by and see what is new. Featured artists for the month of July are displaying some very notable pieces of art. Featured artist Susan Harkness-Williams gladly takes her imagination with her everywhere that she roams. Her latest pieces, Happy I and II, are fine gourd art vessels that explode with color. Each piece is created with eye catching mixed mediums, a sort of “secret sauce,” and the artist’s signature carving style. Susan always strives for statement pieces in her creations. She draws inspiration from archeology, nature and husband Dave. A long time Sunriver resident, the artist plunges head first into mixed media creations of all types — masks, vessels and illustrated creations — with a style that is always evolving. Painter and ceramic artist Marjorie Cossairt always demonstrates an evolving style. Even with her two medias, the gallery’s visitors cannot get enough. One of her newest pieces is an acrylic on canvas painting of running horses that is reminiscent of primitive drawings. The rich rust and turquoise hues of the piece set off the grey horses. Cossairt also offers up her more traditional watercolors of flora and fauna that have always been popular. Her smaller ceramic pieces with thoughtful words and beautiful glazes make wonderful gifts for anyone.
Collectors of pottery pieces from Dori Kite will be pleased to hear that she expanded her studio this winter to include a new kiln which has allowed the artist to evolve her style. Kite has been working on glazes and application for some time with the goal of creating a surface variation that is more like color in nature rather than the “flatter” commercial glazes. Her most recent inspiration, the beautiful Madras area landscape, is the basis of the fresh and fabulous greens, rich earth tones and subtle yellows and golds found in her newest pieces. The new kiln provides Kite with the means to capture the palette of colors that evoke the landscapes that inspire her. Her old “standby” tools — an old soap measuring cup, a ketchup bottle, ear syringe and a rubber basting brush and her fingers — allow Kite to pour, dunk, squeeze and atomize her way to some truly unique and beautiful pieces. Fine art photographer Richard Frederick considers subject matter, light quality, creativity and a thorough technical understanding of the tools of the trade to produce his wonderful art photos. However, what really compels the artist is knowing that a scene becomes a historic record at the instant the shutter is released. He chooses subjects that are provided by nature, have historical significance and can reveal a way of life. Frederick loves the gratification that he receives from creating a work of art that evokes a strong emotion in the viewer. At the gallery, visitors are compelled to stop and linger while contemplating the awe-inspiring landscapes and detailed still life scenes. Pieces can be custom printed in sizes that will meet a collector’s specific needs. artistsgallerysunriver.com Oregon’s Only Arts Magazine Since 1995 | July 2018 31

The Swimmer by Kelly Thiel
Morning at Edo Palace by JM Brodrick
Poling into the River by Charlie Thiel
July 2018 | www.CascadeAE.com
unriver Resort Lodge Betty Gray Gallery shows the artwork of JM Brodrick, Kelly and Charlie Thiel and Artists of the 12” x 12” Exhibit in the upper gallery as well as artwork by Marjorie Wood Hamlin in the lower gallery. This exhibit continues through Labor Day in September. Kelly Thiel presents a new series of acrylic paintings entitled ABOUT FACE. The artworks continue her narrative of the female in large scale with a bright new palette. She notes, “Looking back at my feelings, I can see my readiness for a big shift in my work.” The artist identifies several sources of inspiration for the new palette of energetic pinks, oranges and blue – warmer weather, a colorful art retreat on the Oregon Coast, and memories of childhood beach vacations. Theil’s resume lists numerous national and group shows, including invitationals, exhibiting both her ceramic sculpture and paintings. The noted artist leads workshops on both east and west coasts and recently began showing her work in the United Kingdom. Following her move with husband, Charlie Thiel, and children to Bend in 2014, she and her cofounder opened a new co-working studio, The Wilds. Her personal studio is there as well as studios and workstations for other creatives, fostering the art community in Oregon. Charlie Thiel began photography studies at community college in Charleston, SC, under the tutelage of an exceptional teacher inspiring students to see the art of photography. Simultaneously, he viewed an article highlighting the world’s most acclaimed wedding photographers. Realizing an excellent creative opportunity, he volunteered to assist some of these noted artists, learning to shoot weddings while continuing his studies. Throughout all, he developed considerable skill, beginning a career in wedding/commercial photography. Upon moving to Bend, he worked in commercial photography, also pursuing additional business interests. Continuing to “love photography”, Theil readily accepted the opportunity to travel with fellow photographers (of a non-profit studio) to Laos to teach adult students. Their Laotian students included “two Buddhist monk novices, several women (in a culture not prioritizing educating/empowering women), and other young men, some with families of their own.” The goal was to provide these locals with camera gear, skills and training, assisting them to develop marketable photography skills and the opportunity to create income. All worked in conjunction with a non-profit, public library based in a UNESCO World Heritage town of Luang Prabang. With Buddhist monasteries throughout region, each morning at dawn, monks formed a procession though town to receive alms, usually rice balls. Many of these monks used the bordering Mekong River for travel. Tourists crowded much of the monks’ procession, but Thiel found that “by following monks back to the river, I could capture moments which were both everyday and exotic.” Photographs from his experience now appear at Sunriver Lodge through Labor Day in September. Thiel notes “…having the opportunity to share my photography skills with adult students who crave knowledge and to know that those skills may help them provide an income for their families transformed the trip for me. Not only was I able to absorb the beauty of Luang Prabang, I was able to give something back to people hungry to learn.” The artist’s images from this experience are unique, colorful, and, with the artist’s commentary, endearing. Also appearing in the Sunriver summer show are some 28 paintings by 11 artists in the 12”x 12” Exhibit featuring unique small works all priced at $250. Also appearing on the lower level of the Sunriver Resort Lodge Betty Gray Gallery are colorful, abstract oil paintings and photographs of Central Oregon by Marjorie Wood Hamlin, reviewed in the June issue of the Sunriver Scene. Billye Turner curates exhibitions for the Sunriver Resort Lodge gallery. For information, please contact her at 503.780.2828 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The gallery is open all hours.

For more than two decades, that question has been the driving force behind Sunriver Music Festival’s “Festival Faire,” a magical evening of music, fine dining and auction fun to support the Festival’s Young Artists Scholarship program. “We just awarded over $39,000 in scholarships to 26 students and Festival Faire is the biggest source of income to support this amazing program,” explains executive director Pam Beezley. “Over half a million dollars in scholarships have been award in 23 years thanks to hundreds of Central Oregon residents that believe in music education.” This year’s gala event is celebrating the 100th birthday of Leonard Bernstein, one of America’s greatest artists. The evening takes place at Sunriver Resort’s historic Great Hall on Sunday, July 15. Starting at 4:30pm, you will enjoy a hosted happy hour, fine wines, an elegant dinner prepared exclusively by Sunriver Resort awardwinning chefs and music provided by three of the 2018 Young Artists Scholarship winners. All proceeds from Festival Faire directly support the Festival’s Bernstein Celebration Season and Young Artists Scholarships. Tickets are $100 per person. A great way to enrich your experience is to host a table for friends or business associates. Tables of 8 or 10 can easily be reserved. For complete information on Festival Faire email email@example.com, visit the festival’s website www.sunrivermusic.org or call the office 541-593-9310.

Denise McGregor Book Release Party at Paulina Springs Books
ennis McGregor is an illustrator, designer, songwriter and musician. He’s also a children’s author, and You Stole My Name, his second book, landed in Sisters a couple of weeks ago, after many months of anticipation. It’s now available at Paulina Springs Books. Sisters Gallery and Frame Shop, in conjunction with Paulina Springs Books, is hosting an official Book Release Party during the July 27 Fourth Friday Art Stroll, from 4-7pm. McGregor will be signing books at the book store and prints at the gallery. They are adjacent to each other at 252 W. Hood Ave. in Sisters. You Stole My Name is a children’s coffee-table book, but adults seem to be just as crazy about it. The book began innocently enough a few years ago, when McGregor painted a turtle climbing on a fence. Just for the heck of it, he put a bird on said fence, and realized that the bird was a turtle dove. “How did a bird that looks nothing like a turtle get named after one?” he wondered. That led to the greater question about what other members of the animal kingdom shared their names – and one painting followed after another. Eventually, McGregor had enough for a book that stars CatFish, RhinocerosBeetle, TurkeyVulture and the cover duo, BullFrog. Inspired by these unlikely pairings, he wrote verses to accompany the paintings, and eventually titled the whole shebang, You Stole My Name. “Sales are booming,” said McGregor. “I fulfilled the Kickstarter orders for nearly 800 books, and people are loving it! If you look at my Facebook page, I am showing a strange phenomenon where people are photographing their kids with the book, and sending me the photos,” he said, rushing out the door to play a gig at a local organic farm. “I’m loving it!” “We are so excited to get the book,” said Cynthia Claridge, co-owner of the bookstore. “People visit the gallery, see the paintings, and come next door for the book,” she said. “In fact, I’ve purchased five copies – one for each of my own grandchildren.” You can see and purchase original paintings, prints and note cards at Sisters Gallery and Frame Shop, and books at Paulina Springs Books. Art and music are also available at dennismcgregor.com. As for the man himself, he continues to seek a perfect balance between music, painting, and working the land he owns near Sisters.
SISTERS The 43rd Annual Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show at a Glance
he 43rd Annual Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show themed Creative Trails will be held Saturday, July 14 from 9am-4 pm in Downtown Sisters. More than 1,200 quilts on display in the largest outdoor quilt show in the world. Free to attend. Vincent Van Gogh Cherrywood Fabric Challenge Saturday, July 14, 9am-4pm, Sisters Firehouse. Donations suggested. 2018 Poster Creative Trails by Paul Alan Bennett Artist Paul Alan Bennett will be available from noon until 2pm to sign your copy of the 2018 Quilt Show poster. Paul attended the Maryland Institute of Art for his BFA and received his MA from the University of La Verne, Athens, Greece. His awards are numerous and his work resides at the University of Eastern Oregon and also at Central Oregon Community College. In 2006, Pendleton Woolen Mills produced 16 of his images as tapestries. Paul’s style often uses paint to copy a knit look. Knitting and weaving are common to all cultures so this look lent itself well to incorporating much of his interests in travel, folk art and art history. 2018 Quilt Walk Kick Off Sunday, July 8, noon to 4pm presented by Clearwater Gallery Sunday, July 15, 9am-3pm Valori Wells: 20 Years and 40 Collections—Tapping into Creativity Quilt display for your self-guided tour.

May 2017 marked the end of the longest and most severe global coral reef bleaching (of three ever documented). Learning about this bleaching drove me to create a series of quilts inspired by the biodiversity of coral reefs. Much like a rainforest of the ocean, coral reefs are home to the largest range of known living organisms in the ocean; if that home is destroyed so are the gorgeous creatures you see before you. All of the quilts have recycled or reused materials to reduce waste from reaching the reefs we wish to protect. Part of the By Katie Dumolt proceeds will be donated to the Coral Reef Alliance to help restore these beautiful habitats.
